Callie was a commission of a Chocolate Lab that was done after she had passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. Callie was a sweet girl, who loved to go on the family's boat and even had her own diving board. It is always an honor for me to paint a beloved pet posthumously, and so very important to talk to the people who loved the pet in order to get a feeling of who that pet was, because I like to capture the personality that shines through as well as what they looked like.
I am a classically trained realist painter based on the traditions of the Old Master's style of painting. I paint to capture the emotional impact and drama that occurs somewhere in between the shadows and the light.
